local farms

On our Farm in Fetcham

We rear 360 head of beef cattle, fed only on our grass, silage, hay and barley,which we grow ourselves. In recent years we have diversified into sheep and now with a flock of 300 Llyn ewews crossed with Charolais rams we produce 500 lambs. We also have a flock of 50 Winter Lambing Dorsets, milk lamb for Easter. All of this is sold in both our shops. We now graze over 800 acres of grassland, which includes the very picturesque Polesden Lacey Estate in Great Bookham and Chapel Farm in Westhumble. We stock Limousin and Sussex cattle for their grazing ability, confirmation and great flavour.

Our Pork

Is all produced by Richard Scott from Chicester an outdoor free-range producer, grown slowly, slightly fatter for a traditional flavour, with crispy crackling. We also dry cure and smoke our own Bacon on the premises-well worthy of a try.

Fresh Game

Is available when in season, and we hold a very comprehensive selection. A good range of frozen game is in stock for the rest of the year. We have locally shot Roe Deeer with Pheasant and Duck from local shoots when in season.
